You make a valid point about Iraq. However, to stand by and do nothing when Assad is killing his own people, their blood will be on everyone's hands. The US military is stretched tighter then Joan Rivers face right now, how about Turkey, Saudi, Jordanians and other Arab countries pick up some slack for once? I believe it says in ALL of our "Holy Books" that if we stand by while someone's blood is being shed, we are just as guilty, if we do not help stop it, as the one who is shedding the blood. Syria has been going at it for months now and it IS time we, the world, step in and stop it.
